The Office of the Bursar handles student billing accounts and payments, offers account counseling, and manages the One Card identification and Huskie Bucks debit card programs.

Most international students pay nonresident out-of-state tuition rates. Additional fees* include activity, athletic, facilities, services, and resource fees; technology surcharge; and student medical insurance. NIU financial statements are generated once a month but they are also available to view online through your MyNIU account 24/7. In order to avoid late charges, please pay your balance by the due date specified on the statement. If you have questions concerning the amount due on your statement, please contact the Office of the Bursar immediately.

Sponsored Students

Students whose tuition and fees are paid by a sponsoring agency must present a statement from their sponsor authorizing the university to bill for tuition and fees using third party billing. Third party contracts are processed through the Student Receivables Office within the Office of the Bursar.

*Assistantship appointments do not cover fees and medical insurance. These expenses must be paid by the student.
